Page 1 of 15
The meeting will be held on Thursday, 29 January 2015 at Hotel Hans Egede, Nuuk at 4.00 p.m.
Greenlandic time (CET +4hrs)
To the shareholders of NunaMinerals A/S
On 3 December 2014, NunaMinerals A/S (“NunaMinerals A/S” or the “Company”) announced that the
Government of Greenland had agreed to provide DKK 4.5 million to the Company by way of a loan to
strengthen the Company’s short-term liquidity position. The loan was subject to a number of
conditions, including that the Company convenes an extraordinary general meeting to commence a
share capital restructuring and recapitalisation in order to permit the Company the opportunity to search
for more long-term funding to continue its operations.
The Company has in a longer period sought to obtain long-term funding of its operations, however, it
has not been possible to obtain such funding and thereby secure the continued operation of the
Company.
The proposals under agenda item 2 or alternatively under agenda item 3 are presented to the
shareholders as the Company continues to be in financial distress of such magnitude that the Company
will not be able to continue its operations based on its current liquidity position. Following adoption of
agenda item 2 or 3, as applicable, the Company will continue its search for liquidity and a viable
solution that will ensure the continued operations of the Company.
Notice is hereby given, pursuant to article 4 of the Articles of Association, that the extraordinary
general meeting of NunaMinerals A/S will be held on Thursday, 29 January 2015 at the Hotel Hans
Egede, Aqqusinersuaq 1, 3900 Nuuk at 4.00 p.m. Greenlandic time.
Agenda:

2. Based on a request from the Government of Greenland, the Board of Directors presents the
following proposal to:
A. Amendment of the nominal value per share to be able to issue shares in a denomination of
DKK 0.10 or multiples thereof ;
B. Reduce the Company’s share capital by a nominal amount of DKK 137,954,700 from DKK
137,954,700 to DKK 0 to cover loss;
C. Request delisting from NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen A/S;
D. Increase the Company’s share capital with a nominal amount of a minimum DKK 500,000
and up to DKK 921,542 without pre-emptive rights for existing shareholders by conversion

Holding A/S; and
E. Increase the Company’s share capital with a nominal amount of up to DKK 1,837,552 by
contribution of cash and/or conversion of debt without pre-emptive rights for the existing

B. Reduce the Company’s share capital by a nominal amount of DKK 135,195,606 from DKK
137,954,700 to DKK 2,759,094 to cover loss.

ABOUT NUNAMINERALS A/S
NunaMinerals A/S is Greenland’s leading company in the exploration of precious and base metals as well as strategic metals. Firmly rooted in Greenland,
the company is well positioned to exploit the mineral potential of one of the world’s few remaining unexplored regions. The geology of Greenland has a
number of similarities with that of long-established mining countries such as Canada, South Africa and Australia, which all have substantial mineral
deposits of gold, platinum, nickel and copper, among other commodities. Setting up partnerships that would bring further technical and financial expertise
to the development of the company’s exploration prospects is a key element of NunaMinerals’ business model. NunaMinerals began its operations in 1999
and has its headquarter in Nuuk, Greenland.
The company is listed at NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen A/S under the symbol “NUNA” (Copenhagen: NUNA.CO).
